Chimney sweeping, or chimney cleaning, should be done once a year for active chimneys. Our technicians use a variety of specialized tools to clean chimneys and prevent fires and carbon monoxide backups.
Creosote: Creosote is a flammable substance that forms during fireplace use. Most chimney fires each year in the Torrance area are caused by creosote.
Obstructions: Leaves, twigs, animal nests and other debris can narrow the chimney flue and cause smoke and deadly carbon monoxide to spread into your home.
Our chimney sweep technicians are licensed and insured and bring years of field experience to every job. If it’s been more than a year since your chimney was last cleaned, call us today.
Fireplace & Stove Installations
Oliver Twist provides complete installation service for:
- Manufactured fireplaces
- Heating stoves
- Fireplace inserts
- Gas log sets
We’ll help you select the perfect new heating appliance based on your needs and decorative tastes. We’ll then install it correctly and in compliance with all code requirements.
When the installation is complete, we’ll show you exactly how to use your new appliance and give you some expert tips on caring for it and keeping it in great shape.
Timely chimney inspections can save you money on costly major repairs and help keep your chimney operating safely and efficiently. We offer all three NFPA-recognized levels of chimney inspection.
Level 1 inspection: The basic yearly inspection that we recommend for all our Torrance customers.
Level 2 inspection: A special inspection using video imaging that’s performed when:
- A chimney fire or other event may have caused damage
- Your home is being sold
- You’re adding a new appliance to your chimney or making some other alteration
Level 3 inspection: A full-scale inspection when significant damage exists. This inspection often involves the removal of parts of the chimney and adjacent materials of the home.
